  1. K Gowtham could be an option too. ^ that's right.. and it would be fair to at least give Kartik a few games given he has been in the squads of late
  2. With Manish, agree in hindsight 114 SR seems too low- though he does have a century and 94 in IPL final
  3. I meant domestic cricket, so list A... but in any case FC experience hones skills and technique and temperament which can be applied to all forms of the game. It is far too soon for any of the U19 players to be playing international cricket. If anything it is worse to expose them to T20Is too soon- particularly when there are lots of other deserving candidates
  4. Finally watched Justice League Its not as bad as people make it out to be at all. Not amazing, surprisingly dodgy effects especially Steppenwolf. But entertaining enough overall
  5. How long does it take to hear back from Uni?

    Email or ring em up :) What are you applying to study? Are you based in the UK My Uni applying days were a very long time ago, but, I think it is still earlyish days, only been a month so give it a few more weeks
  6. Hanuma Vihari

    Great Ranji season and now having a good VH tournament too. Should be drafted in the next A teams , average of close to 60 in FC cricket been a consistent scorer over the years What do people know of him - Is he potentially test class? Middle order ODI option?
  7. Changes for the sixth ODI

    Dhawan... :)
  8. Who should open with SRT in All time Indian ODI XI?

    Good poll, it's something I've often wondered about Sehwag can play as a pinch hitting opener even brisk 30 will be useful Between Rohit and Ganguly for me and I'd go for Saurav just, given his Atg odi record. Only argument against is his SR but for the era he played in it was good. Dravid gets unfair stick, at his peak his SR too was good for that era Gambhir would be a good foil for Tendulkar. I'd go with this all time team Sachin, Ganguly, Gambhir, Virat, Dravid, Yuvraj, MSD, Kapil, Kumble, Srinath, Zaheer
  9. Changes for the sixth ODI

    Rahane, Dhawan, Iyer, Manish, Kartik, Jadhav, Bhuvneshwar, Axar, Shami, Thakur, Chahal
  10. Good squad, but surely much much too soon for Gill. Needs two FC seasons
  11. Had a good SMA trophy including a century, need a blend of youth and experience to do well , some seasoned hands to guide the youngsters Also if a player is good enough and performing well, then theyre good enough - regardless of age. If Raina is in form this is the time to play him and hope he does well.
  12. Think Rohit can go he can captain the team. It might leave the team too weak if he too was not playing Rest Virat, Bhuvneshwar, Bumrah, Hardik Drop Shikar, MSD How about... Lokesh Rohit (c) Iyer Pandey Raina Pant Hooda Axar Rajpoot Yuzvendra Jaidev Sundar, Nair, Samson, Thampi, Krunal Plethora of SLA bolwers ! I know Thakur and Siraj made T20i squads but not convinnced they are limted overs bowlers
  13. He scored 94 chasing 200 in the final vs Kings XI, few years ago now but still. Hes a good bat, and deserves an extended run before another canditdate is tried
  14. Dhoni should bat at number 4 or not be played

    4 and 5 is a problem and 6th bowler is a problem too. When Pandya is not bowling well, no one to chip in. Itd be great if Krunal was fit for an extended period and he is drafted in to the LOI set up, i also think Deepak Hooda can be a good no 7 and bowl some overs of tidy offspin potentially... Vijay Shankar cannot bat as low as 7 I do think why not Virat at 4 and Lokesh at 3. MSD at 5. The problem is when MSD comes in around or after the 40th over and he does not have it in him anymore to start at a good SR So MSD at 4 is not a bad shout, I agree he does not start quick enough anymore but with enough time he will make up for it, like Rohit. He accumulates quick enough once he is settled. 5 feels too high for Pandya, and it would be nice if they could give Lokesh a go there he'd be my first choice... with Iyer the next option In summary- Rohit, Dhawan, Virat, MSD, Lokesh/Iyer, Hardik, Krunal/Hooda, Bhuvneshwar, Kuldeep, Yuzvendra, Bumrah
  15. Who are these has beenS you refer to? Of guys who are not ODI cricketers- Rahane is the only one. Kartik you can make a case for given his form in IPL and domestic List A tournos MSD still has a role to play as a middle order bat.
